The conference brings together representatives and experts from official institutions, airlines, airports, product developers, aircraft manufacturers, destinations from all over the world, to discuss key issues to develop further the aviation industry in China.
Air transportation facilitates exports, foreign direct investment, and tourism. The 2016 joint report of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Oxford Economics of Aviation states that airlines, airport operators, aircraft manufacturers, and air navigation service providers employed 1.3 million people in China in 2014. The air transport industry is estimated to have supported a 73 billion (USD) gross value-added contribution to GDP in China in 2014. On top of that, according to Shanghai Securities News (Source: China Daily), China has become the world’s second-largest civil aviation industry in terms of air scale after the US, and it has set a goal of 11.4% per year increase of the passengers’ transport volume to 612 million person-times in 2018.
The air transportation industry is steadily expanding in China. The “13th Five-Year Plan” (2017-2022) sets an overwhelming pace for the coming years: 44 new airports, as well as 139 reconstruction and expansion of airports. How is going to manage the air space and the large number of aircraft? Are current commercial airline pilots and cabin crew teams prepared for those changes?
The conference will share the latest practices in two areas: 1. Air Traffic Management Modernization and New Airports; and 2. World Routes: Air Professional Training Solutions and New Aircraft. Strengthening air traffic management modernization will prove decisive to the success of new airports and routes. The air transport sector’s ability to connect China to Silk Road countries and fast-growing cities can help drive economic growth, serving business, tourism, and cargo sectors, while connecting China worldwide.
